savins profonde cordata, vaHde 5-7-nervia, margiue albo-cartilaginea, interdum ter-

reflexa, extns fusco-tomentosa, intus glabra. Stamina exteriora sepalis paullo bre-
viora; filamentis membranaceis, late Knearibus ; antheris brevibus, angustis; inte-
riora sensim breviora et angustiora, sed antheris gradatim longioribus terminata,
intima fere a basi antherifera. Achenia, ovata, compressa.
A very well-marked species, but; varying like all the others, though to a less
degree than most, in the shape and toothing of the leaves. The" serrate-leaved forms
do not constitute a distinct species, nor even variety; specimens from the same spot,
occasionally even from the same plant, presenting both forms,

Heyne's plant has hitherto been considered an obscure species, and we have seen
no authentic specimen j but the description given by Roth accords so weU with the
plant collected by Mr. Law and Dr. Stocks, that we have no doubt of their identity.
Heyne's specimens were probably obtained from the same district, as many of his
plants were, we believe, collected on the mountains near the western coast.
